Reader wants to know where insurance money went

CHICKASHA — Dear Editor:

Recently, a couple of friends have expressed an interest in what might become of the $4 million-plus of insurance recoveries in the hands of the Chickasha School District. If they don’t know, I suspect many of you do not know either.

A better question would be, “What became of those funds?” Because that money is substantially gone, and I believe your readers (and taxpayers) will take some interest in reading the breakdown of what for and where it went. Further, I firmly believe such revelation should come from your school system – both members and administration.

It comes to mind that since a significant portion of those funds went for fixed assets; why was this money not used for the early childhood school (thus relieving the taxpayers of that much of the $20 million debt recently passed)?

And on that subject, would someone please reveal the amount of the non-competitive fees associated with that $20 million bond issue? No, strike “please.” I insist you publish those fees.

    Dear Editor:
    Education is a wonderful thing. The United States is one of the few countries where everyone is eligible for an education. High School is not restricted to only the smartest kids – anyone who makes the effort to pass the lower grades can go on to high school and/or college.

  • NHS principal appreciates effort of law enforcement

    To the Editor:
    I would like to take this opportunity to thank District Attorney Bret Burns and Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams for going above and beyond their job descriptions to help me with a situation that recently occurred at Ninnekah High School.
    Chickasha Police Chief Lynn Williams helped in a matter that occurred in the Chickasha city limits, but affected Ninnekah School. I appreciate his assistance. The Chickasha School District is extremely lucky to have a police chief who will go the extra mile to support education and student safety.
